1916 Rebellion Walking Tour
From US$15.33

Learn about the 1916 Rebellion in Dublin with this interactive walking tour. Avoid the hassle of navigating and follow your guide to important landmarks including City Hall and Dublin Castle. See bullet holes marking the exterior of the General Post Office and hear stories from a local about revolutionary figures including James Connolly and Michael Collins.

What to Expect

Meet your guide at the International Bar in the heart of Dublin. The tour begins with an introduction to the history of the revolutionary period in Ireland, beginning with the Irish Famine of the 1840s and culminating in the 1916 Rising.

The first stop on this walking tour is Trinity College, followed by Old Parliament and a stroll over the Rosie Hackett Bridge. Here the guide shares stories about the women of the revolution, from Countess Markievicz to Rosie Hackett. The guide also points out Liberty Hall and explains the role of James Connolly in the 1916 rising.

The tour continues at Daniel O’Connell’s memorial and then at Jim Larkin’s statue. History comes to life in seeing the bullet and shrapnel holes still marking the exterior of the General Post Office on O’Connell Street.

Learn about this tumultuous time in Irish history as you walk to see one of Michael Collins’ offices, the Henry Grattan Bridge, and City Hall. The final stop is a visit to Dublin Castle, the seat of the British Administration before 1922.

The tour finishes at Dublin Castle, but participants are invited back to the International Bar for an optional refreshment or lunch.

Make sure you take this walking tour!

Lorcan Collins was incredible. His knowledge of the subject, as evidenced by his books & passion for Ireland comes through with every word & gesture. He thoughtfully answers every question with historical significance & expertise. I'm glad I bought one of his books too.

A must for anyone interested in history

Our tour guide was very well informed and has even written several books about the 1916 uprising. He was a gifted storyteller with a great sense of humor. We learned a lot and enjoyed the tour.

Entertaining and informative

We booked the tour as this incident is incredibly interesting, so we had some prior knowledge of what occurred but Lorcan's educated and highly entertaining deliver, in the actual location of the events, was totally worthwhile! 13 euros? A bargain!

The walk lasts about two hours or a little bit more as I recall but not exhausting as frequent stops. I have some difficulty physically with walking distances or too fast but I had no issues.
